Empowering employees to take control of their own careers has always been a priority at Bouygues. A common culture founded on respect, creativity, self-sufficiency and imparting expertise encourages employees to pursue opportunities within the Group. Internal job mobility is a way of meeting our companies’ continual needs for adaptation and it stimulates our employees’ careers by allowing them to pursue a rich and varied career path within the Group.

Catherine Beillon, Deputy Industrial Operations Manager at Colas, and Karl del Papa, Technical Manager at Bouygues Immobilier, talk about the opportunities for internal job mobility within the Group, both in terms of changing profession or geographical location.

Encouraging internal job mobility

In all our subsidiaries, Human Resources teams provide support to employees to help them with their career plans and optimise their chances of success. Teams and mechanisms in each business segment assist in the dissemination of job offers and support employees seeking internal job mobility opportunities. 

For instance, Mobyclic, the Group’s digital job portal, offers over 1,000 vacancies and applications can be made on-line.

Two Group-level development programmes were launched for high-potential managers:

  • “Perspective”, focusing on 100 strong potential top managers in both French and international operations.
  • “Trajectoire”, which is geared towards high-flying female employees, with an initial intake of 38 managers in both French and international operations.

Supporting high-flyers

Our HR teams place a special emphasis on identifying, retaining and developing high-flyers so they can take on positions of increasing responsibility within the Group. Individual and group support programmes have also been rolled out across the Group’s business segments, helping to boost employees’ performance and strengthen their dedication. 

Thanks to the diversity of its entities and activities, Bouygues offers a wealth of career opportunities for employees in lines of business that cut across the Group.

Group-wide committees also meet annually, bringing together HR
managers and operational executives from the cross-company departments
such as legal, IT and HR to analyse career opportunities within all entities
and promote internal job mobility.
